The name is Amanda. But recently I’ve been given the nickname of Manderz, Damanda, Rolive, and Arolive. Chances are, if you call me by most of these names, I won’t answer. But ya know, give it a try if you want.
Currently, I’m a student at the University of Louisville. We aren’t as good as The Ohio State University, so we don’t capitalize “the”.
I hate bananas, and all things University of Kentucky. Except for my sister, because she has the misfortune of going there. Poor, Kaitlyn. I’d say she doesn’t know better, but she does. I’ve told her many a time.
I love lemonade and southern hospitality. And although I like to believe I’m not southern, in my heart of hearts, I’ve come to the realization I am.
My favorite state is South Dakota. I’ve never actually been there though. Judge me if you want. Whatever.
I sometimes like to pretend I can talk in a British accent, but really I can only say ‘ello puppet semi-convincingly.
I’m overly dramatic at times, and laugh at things that aren’t funny. I love random facts. And store them up in my brain where I should be storing things like information for class.
I’ve never broken a bone, but I’ve always wanted a cast.
I love movies and music and photography. Social Media is awesome, but terrible as far as natural human interaction is concerned.
I love most all sports, but football has always been my favorite. Baseball is confusing. And don’t even get me started on how boring the NBA is.
I’m currently taking Italian, and like to humor myself that that makes me Italian. I should be, I eat enough Italian food.
I love my church. So much. God has richly blessed me with the teaching and congregation there.
I love Jesus with every ounce of my being, and desire to serve Him everyday. I mess up and make mistakes, but know that He is with me throughout it all.
I desire for the nations to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. As their Rock and Redeemer.
I am so thankful for Christ taking my sins upon His shoulders. I’m grateful for the personal relationship He has given me with God. I’m just thankful for every blessing He has willingly given a sinner like me.
My life is crazy. My life is messy. My life is embarrassing. But it’s God’s, and He’s got it all in control. So even though I have NO CLUE what I’m doing, or what is going on, most of the time, I can rest in the fact that God has a much bigger and greater plan than any I could ever design myself. I’m here for the ride. Feel free to join.
